Runnerbox Review and Giveaway!

The people at Runner Box were gracious enough to send me one of their great little Runnerboxes for review. I was pretty excited to get one of these things and wondered what would be in one? It was kind of like the excitement you get when you receive a gift on your birthday. So what is this Runnerbox that I'm speaking of? This is what their website had to say:

RunnerBox is a subscription based box for runners, triathletes and other active people. It is a mini shoebox filled with running products, mailed to your front door. It has everything from energy products, gels, chews, protein shakes/supplements, nutrition bars, skincare, and other accessories! Some products will be brand new (but personally tested) on the market, and some will be tried and true favorites. With so many products coming out on the market, leave the trials and testing to us, we’ll search out the best and send them to you!

You've probably seen or heard of this kind of service for other things such as boxes geared toward beauty or other products like cheese or wine but this one is geared specifically to runners or triathletes. You can choose a tribox or in my case the runnerbox and they can either be shipped as a gift or to yourself as a one time service, a monthly subscription or a 6 month subscription.

So whats in the box?

It had a cool assortment of different energy gels, some athletic wipes, protein recovery powder and then some things I've never used before like the cocovita mix. The Runnerbox will run you about 25 dollars after shipping. 

I like the concept and although its exciting to get a box every month. I don't know if I'd actually subscribe to it. I would however purchase one of these boxes for my runner friends as a gift. What runner wouldn't love one of these cool boxes!

Speaking of gifts. I'd like offer one of you a Runnerbox in my giveaway!

  1. Love it! You know #myafter is ice cold chocolate milk!!

  2. I saw this a week or so ago and thought it was cool. My way to refuel is also Chocolate Milk!

  3. It is a pretty cool idea...I agree not sure if its for me either but a great gift. I use water and beer, and then later chocolate. ;) Keep up the bloggin buddy, love reading ur stompin.

  4. Generally I prefer a beer after a race ... actually a few beers. But I have been known to throw down a choclate milk as well.

  5. I run in the morning, so coffee is my usual REFUEL, but who can deny chocolate milk!

  6. I look forward to chocolate milk when I get home after our weekly runs! It's the only time I don't feel guilty for drinking it :)

    1. Congrats April you have won my giveaway!!

  7. Sounds like a fun gift for a runner friend - I'll have to remember this!

    Favorite way to refuel - chocolate milk or coconut water!

  8. Races without chocolate milk at the finish are somewhat disappointing.
    Whenever I can, I have my daughter waiting at the finish with a couple of cold chocolate chugs.

  9. I agree with Bill, runs without chocolate milk are a little disappointing. Chocolate milk and peanut butter or bananas are always what I go for.

  10. Love the blog and videos! I refuel with yogurt and granola! Interesting idea for a gift. Probably too expensive to subscribe to though.

  11. I love to refuel with fruit. Especially oranges. But I would love to try other things, fruit is always the easiest.

  12. I usually run right when I get out of bed, so after my run I refuel with breakfast :D usually cereal with blueberries or bananas and soy milk OR eggs and toast :) as for my cold water :D I want this runnerbox. the end.

  13. Great review, Sounds like a great gift idea.

  14. Chocolate milk is the only way to refuel!!
